Rietveld plot of a mixture of β-17α-estradiol hemihydrate and α-17α-estradiol. The largest errors occur at the peaks of the β phase. Examination of the sample with an optical microscope revealed the presence of large single crystals. The rapid specimen rotation at the synchrotron beamline could not yield a powder average from such a coarse sample.
